Water Wheel Classic....it was definitely a classic. Once a year is what makes it classic. As a matter of fact the track crew is still working on the repair of the facility 3 days later.
The next race will be May 19 & 20 at Pea Ridge in Jonesville, SC. There is plenty of level parking at this track. Track crew will start working on the track next week. My best guess will be that the track will be 7 miles. Remember that is a GUESS not the final mileage.
If you have not received your AMA card and signed up at the first 3 rounds, please contact AMA to let them know that you have not received it. As a general rule, it take 4-6 weeks to get your card,. At the first 3 rounds, AMA had a representative on site to handle the purchase of AMA.
According to Webster dictionary sportsmanship is defined as "conduct (such as fairness, respect for one's opponent, and graciousness in winning or losing) becoming to one participating in a sport." In life there are times that we think things are unfair or unjust but we go on. Hopefully we will be good examples to our children and those who are spectators of good sportsmanship.
Thank you to Cameron Taylor and Debbie Ashley for the quick response to an injured rider. Many of you may not be aware that they will ride the track on Saturday morning so they will know they best way to reach a rider if necessary. It may seem like a long time when you or your rider is injured but rest assured that they are being taken care of by two of the best EMT/Paramedic's around.
Every week Ricky Towery will mention prayer request during the rider's meeting. This week he mentioned roughly 12 different names of those within the Mideast family who need our prayers. Add to the list, Hannah Stephens as she recovers from surgery to repair her femur, Robert Whitock as he heals from broken ribs, Thomas Wilson is having surgery on Friday to repair his shoulder. I've said it many times and I truly believe that each pray is heard and answered, maybe not answered how we would like but answered.
Thank you for your support of the Mideast series! Without you the rider, the spectator and the worker, there would not be a Mideast Hare Scramble Series!!
Remember.....do not let yesterday take up to much of today.
